Tickford announces formal partnership with Roush
Aussie tuning outlet formalises long standing supply program with Roush
13 Mar 2020
AUSSIE Ford tuning specialist Tickford has announced a new partnership with American specialists Roush Engineering to supply Roush Performance products to the Australian market as well as collaborate on the development of new products.
The new alliance will see a greater range of genuine Roush Performance parts reach Australian soil for the V8-powered Mustang and F-150 pick-up, with Tickford already supplying and fitting a myriad of parts for both vehicles as well as the Everest SUV and Ranger pick-up – Raptor included.
Tickford managing director Rod Nash said the decision to formalise a long-standing supply program was only natural.
“We have always been impressed with the Roush Performance quality and design, having installed over 100 Roush Performance superchargers in Mustangs since their introduction to Australia in 2016, and we have enjoyed a close working relationship during this time,” he said.
“It was therefore a natural route to continue this program with an official partnership allowing us to offer Roush Performance parts across our national centres while also working on new ideas and we’re extremely excited to announce the partnership.”
Jack Roush Jr, son of Roush founder and CEO Jack Roush Snr said his father’s company was both proud and excited to be joining forces with Tickford.
“Their rich heritage in both performance and in racing shows a passion and commitment motorsports and the automotive enthusiast market,” he said.
If recent rumours prove accurate, the first big collaboration that could stem from the new partnership could be a supercharged version of the Ranger Raptor V8, a vehicle some reports claim could produce more than 500kW of and 800Nm of torque courtesy of a 2.65-litre Roush supercharger and subsequent engine and ECU tweaks.
While strictly a Tickford affair, Roush has found some extra fans Down Under away from the aftermarket scene recently, with Ford Australia and Herrod Performance using the same 2.65-litre blower to create the limited-run Mustang R-Spec.
